IntroductiON

The effectiveness of Lean Six Sigma Black Belts

Have you ever wondered why issues at work persist, even when many people are unhappy about them? It’s likely that several attempts to resolve the problem were made, yet it kept coming back. The underlying issue here is that true improvement does not work without knowing exactly what to resolve. This insight and the skill of finding out and exposing the real root cause of a problem is what makes Black Belts the driving force behind resolving and preventing problems. Black Belts know which changes truly contribute to a solution. And only through this understanding can lasting improvements be achieved.

The organisational benefits

All organisations benefit enormously from a reduction of waste. Imagine a department with workflows which are not disrupted by a lack of materials, waiting times, or defects. By reducing waste, you improve productivity. Lean Six Sigma typically defines 7 types of waste, and Black Belts know how to eliminate each of them. They achieve this either through initiatives on a daily basis, or through complex, inter-departmental projects. The latter is where Black Belts achieve the most significant results, and are best utilised. During the course, participants are taught all the essential tools and methods, how to involve stakeholders, and keep efforts focused until results are in the bag.

Our Winning Formula

The Study Framework for Success

Instructor-led teaching

Our teaching approach is characterised by its instructor-led format, designed to cater to diverse learning preferences. Participants have the liberty to choose between a fully online or an entirely in-person classroom experience, with the added benefit of combining these methods to tailor their learning journey. Central to our educational philosophy is the application of Lean Six Sigma principles through simulations, offering students a direct insight into the methodology’s efficacy. Education is delivered by seasoned Master Black Belts, whose thirty years of expertise enrich the learning environment.

Additionally, our approach fosters peer-to-peer learning and encourages discussions that prompt critical thinking, broadening perspectives on Lean Six Sigma’s application. Furthermore, it provides a platform for networking, allowing students to forge valuable connections throughout their course of study. This holistic approach ensures a well-rounded educational experience, equipping learners with both theoretical knowledge and practical skills.

The course set-up explained

The six stages to become a results-oriented Black Belt

Our programme is meticulously crafted to facilitate the application of your newly acquired knowledge and skills in a practical setting. In the featured video, our lead instructor and Master Black Belt, Michel Doppert, elucidates the benefits and expectations of undertaking our Black Belt course. Below, we present the six key stages to evolve into a results-oriented Black Belt.








  • Lifelong access to our LMS

  • Information on your programme

  • Online learning materials

Upon enrolment, you gain access to the MyTraining learning platform. This is where you can find the details on your programme, and where you can track the progress of your learning journey.

From here, you can also access your online learning materials, including a full suite of explanatory videos, digital books, and access to full online courses that go in-depth on a variety of Continuous Improvement subjects.


  • In-depth online courses

  • Learning platform videos

  • Digital books

Throughout your entire journey and beyond, you will have access to our online suite of instructional videos, digital books and several in-depth full courses, found on our separate e-learning platform ‘The Productivity Company’.

These materials are available to you in perpetuity, and they offer you the opportunity to revisit your learning insights at any point in time – whether it is as preparation, a refresher or just to brush up on the finer details of the craft.


  • Theory instruction

  • Case studies

  • Simulations

  • Exercises

  • Peer to peer discussion

  • Continue defining and planning your first project

Your classroom training will walk you through the background, theory and practical aspects of Lean Six Sigma – with a strong emphasis on the latter.

During your classroom training you will not only learn directly from the instructor, but also from the insights and case studies of your peers.

As you progress through this part of the programme, your new insights, and the aid of your instructor will help you formulate and prepare for your improvement project.


  • Project at your organization (or third party with consent)

  • 8 hours of mentoring and support by your tutor

Much of the work in a project lies in its formulation and planning, which is woven throughout every step of your programme.

After your classroom training, when you are ready, you will set to work on an improvement project directed at achieving actual results for your organization.

This is not just your final test to earn certification; far more importantly, it is your first step as a Continuous Improvement professional specializing in Operational Excellence.


  • Become a certified expert

  • Internationally acknowledged certification

Upon successful completion of your theory exam and your improvement project, you will receive official, internationally recognised certification in your new role.

This certification proves beyond a shadow of doubt that you possess the required competencies according to international Lean Six Sigma quality standards.


  • Access our alumni community

  • Retain access to all materials

  • Continued tutor support

Of course, while your programme may officially end upon certification, your Continuous Improvement journey is never-ending.

Even after certification, you will receive continued support from your instructor, retain access to all learning materials, and gain access to our community of alumni.

At this point you can look back at your programme with pride, and forward to your future with well-earned confidence.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

Can I enrol and join a course without any prior experience or knowledge of Lean Six Sigma?

Every course we provide assumes our students start the course without any understanding of the Lean Six Sigma methodology. It starts with the fundamentals and explains every topic that is mentioned without assuming prior experience. During the course, you will carry out simulations and exercises to help you develop your knowledge. If you choose to carry out a project as part of your course, you will be coached and assisted by one of the (Master) Black Belts of The Lean Six Sigma Company to help you get started.

What is the right course for me?

This depends on your goals and what you intend to achieve. If you would prefer to employ Lean Six Sigma on a part-time basis, for example alongside of other work, the Green Belt course would be the best choice. If it’s your aim to work with Continuous Improvement and Lean Six Sigma on a full-time basis, then the Black Belt course would be the right pick. The same applies to Lean and our Lean Practitioner and Lean Leader course, respectively.

Is a Lean Six Sigma course relevant to my career phase?

Lean Six Sigma is a methodology that one can start using during any career phase and this course is the ideal starting point. Even as a beginner, your work can add tremendous value. Lean Six Sigma can serve as an addition to your current work, replacing a part of your existing responsibilities. Or it can become a new full-time career, depending on the course you choose.

 

How does the Services course differ from the Manufacturing course?

The Services course is most fitting for those employed in transactional careers such as general administration, logistics, finance, etc. The ‘Manufacturing’ course is most fitting for those involved with mass production, machinery, factories and automation). Of course, those who complete the Manufacturing course can still carry out projects in the aforementioned transactional fields.

I find statistics a daunting topic, is a Lean Six Sigma course still for me?

The Green Belt course has very little statistics content, as opposed to our Black Belt course. Yet even the Black Belt courses have designed to start at the very basics, on the assumption that our participants aren’t familiar with anything related to statistics. We realise the idea of working with statistics can sound somewhat intimidating, but our trainers have helped thousands of professionals understand (and find their interest in) statistics. Additionally, we offer complementary courses and several videos on our MyTraining™ platform that will help you prepare for, or repeat, specific exercises.

Do you offer any evening- or weekend courses?

The Lean Six Sigma Company strives to organise its courses during normal working hours.
This is a conscious choice in order to avoid interfering with the private lives of our customers and to them used to the idea of working with Lean Six Sigma during typical working hours, and continue this habit once they complete the course.
However, some local exceptions apply. Please reach out to to the helpdesk in your region if you have any questions

Do you offer courses in other languages?

More information about our worldwide presence can be found on our theleansixsigmacompany.com worldmap page, here you will find in which countries we are currently active and offer courses.

Green Belt vs Black Belt

The main difference is the scope of your projects. Green Belt projects are usually aimed at solving issues that affect a small part of a single department. Black Belt projects tend to tackle long-standing, complex issues that cross departmental lines. The responsibilities of a Green Belt align with those of a project manager. Black Belts carry more responsibilities and take a more active, leading role where they direct other Green Belts during projects.
